[Mar 1st]: Student grants!! ETAPS has decided to grant to the best PhD students that will attend the 2013 edition a contribution to partially subside their expenses. We have allocated some grants of 500 euros each, that can be used by the recepients to cover their travel or subsistence expenses.Notice that we need receipts to justify the payment you will receive after ETAPS. So, you can use up-to 500 euros, by summing all the receipts you have, until you reach that sum. You should send your updated CV in plain ascii to both Prof. Joost-Pieter Katoen(This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) and Prof. Francesco Parisi Presicce (This email address is being protected from spambots.

Your request will be evaluated and you will receive an outcome by March 15th. Also already registered students can apply.

The European Joint Conferences on Theory and Practice of Software (ETAPS) is the primary European forum for academic and industrial researchers working on topics relating to Software Science.

ETAPS, established in 1998, has traditionally been a confederation of five main annual conferences (CC, ESOP, FASE, FOSSACS and TACAS) accompanied by satellite workshops and other events. Since 2012, a new main conference, POST, has been added to the other five ones.

The sixteenth edition, ETAPS 2013, will take place in Rome, Italy.

A sightseeing of Rome

Rome "The Eternal City".

Rome is the capital of Italy and the country's largest and most populated municipality. The city is located in the central- western portion of the Italian Peninsula, on the Tiber river. Rome's history spans over two and a half thousand years. It was the capital city of the Roman Kingdom, of the Roman Republic and of the Roman Empire, which was a major political and cultural influence in the lands bordering the Mediterranean Sea.


Since the 2nd century AD, Rome has been the seat of the Papacy and, after the end of the Byzantine domination, in the eighth century it became the capital of the Papal States. In 1871, Rome became the capital of the Kingdom of Italy, and in 1946 that of the Italian Republic. Rome's influence on western Civilisation can hardly be overstated, and the city is still recognised as a centre of the arts and education. Due to this centrality on many levels, and much of the city's past power and influence, Rome has been nicknamed "Caput Mundi" (Latin for "Capital of the World") and "The Eternal City".

Rome Fiumicino is one of the main airports in Europe; it provides direct connections with all the main cities in Europe and with several ones in the world. Rome is also served by a second airport, Rome Ciampino, featuring low cost flights from several European cities.

The event is organized by Sapienza Università di Roma. Sapienza has a very long and prestigious history, it is the largest university in Europe and the second-largest in the world, with more than 150,000 students.
